Investigative journalist, Efo Korsi Senyo has jumped to the defence of his colleague, Manasseh Azure Awuni over the backlashes against his undercover report on a state-sponsored militia group.
Manasseh Azure Awuni is under attack after he led Joy News to bring to bear the operations of a pro-NPP militia, De-Eye Group from the Christianborg Castle classified as Security Zone.
The government and the NPP have all denied training such a group and further described the documentary as “empty” and sensational.
Executive Director of Irbard Security Consult, Irbard Ibrahim also claims Manasseh Azure Awuni caused fear and panic and further dragged the integrity of the state into disrepute with his documentary and thus, must be arrested and prosecuted.
“The State should summon this guy (Manasseh Azure Awuni) and his collaborators for questioning. It is treasonous to destroy the reputation of the State bringing its integrity to question locally and internationally. Freedom of expression doesn’t mean the State should be taken for granted. If this is how these people will behave, the RTI may never see the light of day!” the controversial Security expert shared on Facebook.
In a quick response, the Executive Editor of Awake News, Efo Korsi Senyo asked Mr. Irbard to shush as he is “rather a serious threat to national security”.
He questioned Irbard’s competence as a security expert and bemoaned how Ghana is unable to progress with the failure by the likes of the Security Consult boss to defend the country with their “heads”.
